Can Qwill and the cats find the rich embezzler who has cheated Moose County out of millions of dollars? When the affluent owner of a historic steam locomotive and private railcar absconds with millions of dollars belonging to Moose County investors, police are called in to search for the fugitive. In Pickax, journalist Jim Qwilleran and his feline sleuths probe another mystery, however: Who blew the whistle on the embezzler, and why? With the help of Koko and Yum Yum, Qwill proves that the police are on the wrong track. The mystery is just beginning to heat up, and no easy solutions are at hand. Disturbing questions are left unanswered: What caused a train wreck on the main line? Is there a connection between the wreck and the missing millionaire? When a dead body turns up in a railroad tavern, it's obvious someone has a secret he is willing to kill to keep. Can Qwill and the cats find out who blew the whistle, before they are silenced permanently?

About the Author

The history of Lilian Jackson Braun is perhaps as exciting and mysterious as her novels. Between 1966 and 1968, she published three novels to critical acclaim: The Cat Who Could Read Backwards, The Cat Who Ate Danish Modern, and The Cat Who Turned On and Off. In 1966, the New York Times labeled Braun, "the new detective of the year." Then, for reasons unknown, the rising mystery author disappeared from the publishing scene. It wasn't until 1986 that Berkley Publishing Group reintroduced Braun to the public with the publication of an original paperback, The Cat Who Saw Red. Within two years, Berkley released four new novels in paperback and reprinted the three mysteries from the sixties. Since then, G.P. Putnam's Sons has published seventeen additional novels in the Cat Who series. Braun passed away in 2011.

This is the 17th book in Lilian Jackson Braun's The Cat Who books. In it we find Qwill about to take a trip on a restored steam engine. Before long there's a credit union crash in a nearby county and the owner of the credit union goes missing. Has he done a runner with the money as everyone else thinks or has he in fact been murdered as Qwill suspects?
